    I have a few files here that were zipped up like so:
    File.zip.001
    File.zip.002
    File.zip.003
    File.zip.004

    I don't have the program that he used to break the file up into multiple archives, and I can't get a hold of him either. Does anyone know how to merge/unzip these? I've tried WinZIP and WinRAR, and both failed to work...???

    you should be able to just open the first file with winrar and then see the file inside and extract to a folder.

    The file itself will not be recognized by windows, so you double click then you choose open with and then you pick winrar.

    I believe that you can just graphically select a bunch of .zip files and then right click "add to compressed file" and you will get an output .zip file with many .zip files within in. Not really the best way to go...use .rar if you want better compression ratios.

    LOL. Go Linux! :p

    Actually, I can do it in Windows too, you just have to have some Unix tools installed, which most people don't care to do.
